One of the very best things about autumn on Whidbey Island is being able to support all of our local farmers! Whether you’re looking for a new Whidbey Island pumpkin patch recommendation or you’re new in town and want to start a new tradition, you’ll find 3 excellent choices right here:
The Farm Stand at K & R Farms
Located at 36699 SR 20 Oak Harbor, Washington
Every Friday and Saturday night throughout October 2018, you can embark on The Farm Stand’s Flashlight Corn Maze. The maze is open from dark until 10pm, it’s $5/person, and children under 2 are free. (A limited number of flashlights are available to rent if you don’t have one.) RSVP on Facebook here so you don’t forget! You can also stop by for fresh produce and of course, make time to go for a walk in the pumpkin patch.
Located at the end of Case Road Oak Harbor, Washington
Case Farm has been around since 1898, and they have been proud farmers for 5 generations now. This year, they started drop-in visits on October 10th. They shared that 2018 is more of a low-key year because of the dry summer, but it still sounds like it will be wonderfully festive and memorable!
You can stop by to say hello to their animals (cows, turkeys, ducks, chickens, cats, and dogs!), enjoy picking out a pumpkin, and buy some harvest decor and fresh fall produce while you’re at it. Plus, littles ones can take a turn at a toddler-friendly bale maze.
Case Farm also hosts educational visits for school and preschool groups to teach them about farming—visit their Facebook page for contact info!
Sherman’s Pioneer Farm
Located at 46 S Ebey Rd Coupeville, Washington
Established all the way back in 1852, this Whidbey staple shines extra bright when October comes around. Visit Sherman’s Pioneer Farm to stock up on pumpkins, edible squash, and gourds; go for a trolly ride to the pumpkin patch; pick up fresh pies and other baked goods; visit their cows, and more. In previous years they’ve had a hay bale maze and a haunted house too—and of course, there are photo ops around every corner!
